The Weird Worlds of A.E. van Vogt is the world’s oldest and most prominent website dealing with this author from the Golden Age of science fiction. Created in the late ’90s by Magnus Axelsson in Iceland, it has provided superb resources and a central gathering place for fans, and can be credited with bringing van Vogt back to the attention of the general public after he unjustly languished in obscurity for many years.
In March 2008, after moving on to other fields of interest, Magnus ceased updating his site apart from adding a few news items. Since October 2009, it has seen no updates of any kind, and now it will soon be removed altogether from its current home on MMedia at vanvogt.www4.mmedia.is. Fortunately, over the last few months Magnus and I have been working together to move his entire site to my Icshi.net domain, where it is now accessible at www.icshi.net/worlds/.
